About the Instructor:

Tony is the workhorse behind aNERDgallery. He is the curator, creative director, business manager and many other hyphenated job titles, all packed into one. On his “relax” day, Tony puts on his nerd glasses and artist cap (two fashion accessories that might not mesh together), experiments with the different batik process parameters and researches on geeky things like natural dye extraction methods and fractal geometrical designs. With his skill and experience as a lifestyle writer and marketeer, he wants to share the art and the artists behind this “misunderstood” medium to the rest of the world. As a result, aNERDgallery was born and hence, a workshop created for you!
